Biography

 

Iain Holman is a Scottish portrait and figurative artist, born in Inverness and now working from his studio in the village of Crawford, South Lanarkshire.  After a career working as a graphic designer, he returned to painting and is now exhibiting in selected galleries in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.  His work has also been on show at the Mall Galleries in London and he has appeared in a number of art publications.  In 2016, he graduated with a Masters Degree in Fine Art from the Open College of the Arts (UCA).

 

Iain’s work is driven and shaped by the enduring fascination with the human form, often portraying his subjects as lone figures in confined spaces.  He blends realism with abstraction, using layers of oil paint on canvas to create painted patterned images that are both structured and immediate.  His inspiration is found around him and is of the moment; reacting to the time he is living in today and recording his experiences as a visual diary.
